Views 157


Fr Matthias gives the homily at Bloomington, IN, on Feb 27, 2024, on the importance of acknowledging our God-given nature and truthfully addressing gender pronouns in charity.

It is important to be true to ourselves and what God has given us, especially regarding gender identity, and not falsely label ourselves or others in ways that don't match our God-given nature. Although it is necessary to treat everyone with respect and love, we shouldn't support ideas that conflict with this truth. Father suggests ways to handle situations involving gender pronouns respectfully while staying faithful to our beliefs.
